Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOTS: WHO ARE THOSE GUYS




I know I just posted a quiz, but these just arrived in the mail and I couldn't resist posting them, besides this should be easy. They are from the Gil Gray Circus, and the best I can figure is late '50's, a hint, they are brothers. They are from the Paul Creason collection.

John Herriott tells me the elephant with Bobby is Gil Gray's Minnie. He also says that Gil Gray had no Zebra then which puts Casey either in the wrong place or wrong time. It could be K.C., Mo. as Paul took a lot of photos there.

Did you know after a while he was one of few acts allowed to park at the fairgrounds in Spfld. because he saved one of the barns from burning. Another act that was always welcome there was the Nock Family.
